Everytime a player picks his underwear out of his butt he loses a game.

Everytime an American win a match on clay in a big tournament outside US that player gets straight to the final with a 6/0 5/1 lead.

now this one should please gwh

the arnaud clement rule:
any player who insults a ballboy/ballgirl, should be made to do community service, by becoming a ballboy for the rest of the tournament, regardless of his progress in it. this is another way to see more of a player in an entertaining role.

note: insulting an umpire does not bring about a similar outcome. umpires do get paid so that is not community service.

We could have an idols-like jury consisting of a former mediocre female tennis player, a tennis coach and a tennis official to criticise the players after every unforced error. This jury could consist of Jana Novotna, Brad Gilbert an Mr. Disney himself.
i've been laughing at a lot of suggestions but this one takes the cake for me. it is a scary scenario, because i can just see it happening. some desparate tourney might want to try it

question is, would any pro be game enough to enrol with the tournament ??? lol

All tournaments will be played under an enourmous circus tent, John McEnroe will ump every tennis match, and the rankings system will be thrown out and replaced with a magic 8-ball

In less than a year, Feli becomes the new world number one after surpassing Roger's highest point total some time midway through the season.

The winner of a tournament gets their name engraved on a beautiful silver trophy, a small replica of the trophy to take home, a fashion spread in Seventeen magazine, and a $100,000 contract with Cover Girl.
Lopez already has all those rewards, so he might tank some tournaments by gaining some weight and not putting on any makeup

Why do they think they need to change the game to make it more interesting. It already is interesting. Changing rules won't draw in the masses who never watched tennis before.

I find it less exciting when they try to shorten the matches as they have in doubles.

Or some Russian. He also btw likes the earlier suggestion of getting phone numbers in bars, thinks he could make #1 with that in record time too.

Instead of a tiebreak the crowd will decide the winner of a set in a "HOT or NOT" contest, where the 2 players strip to their underwear (got to keep it decent, there are kids in those events after all) and strut around the court to be judged by the spectators. The hotter of the 2 will win the set.

That will make even Nalby sweat every day in the gym and cut down on those burgers! As for Ljubicic, Stepanek, etc, they will have to make sure they break, or have plastic surgery, or play against each other.

Whichever player can consume the most *insert alcoholic beverage of choice* at the changeovers and still ace his opponent wins the game.

Whichever umpire can consume the most *iaboc* and still keep track of the score...wait, they already instituted this one. My bad.
